Tyler Hansbrough, Ryan Anderson and Others Who Deserve True Starter's Minutes

Every year, fans like me (who think they know more than the NBA's coaches) wonder why some players spend most of their time on the bench, despite lighting it up while they're on the floor.

This season, a couple of guys who've played very well in the time they've been given, are Tyler Hansbrough and Ryan Anderson.  Every time I see these guys play, or look up their team's box score, I can't help but wonder why they don't get more playing time.

Oftentimes, we're told the reason a player can't stay on the court is his inability to defend.  However, when the guy who gets more minutes doesn't seem to defend any better, the question becomes even more vexing.

Anderson and Hansbrough aren't the only guys I think deserve more minutes.  This slideshow will detail 10 players who are very productive in limited minutes, and whose teams could be better if they were given more time on the floor.
